Shake up your beach holiday with picture-perfect backgrounds, delicious Aussie fare and eclectic shopping — just a stone’s throw away from Australia’s city centres
Home to over 10,000 beaches, it’s unsurprising that Australia has some of the world’s most pristine and picturesque coastal precincts. From beaches lined with multi-coloured bathing boxes to sculptures along spectacular coastlines, we handpick the country’s three finest stretches of paradise that will have you raring for a quick seaside escape pronto.
Bondi, New South Wales
Bondi Beach may be one of Australia’s most famous stretches of sand but come October and November, the iconic beach turns into an outdoor art gallery. Be dazzled by Sculpture By the Sea, a free exhibition featuring sculptures of every shape, colour and size along the coast from Bondi to Tamarama Beach, roughly 30 minutes from Sydney’s city centre by train and bus.
Looking to whet your appetite? Whether you’re hungry for food, drinks or shopping, Bondi’s Campbell Parade has it all. Shop for eclectic pieces at its stylish boutiques or visit the Bondi Beach Markets on Sundays for great bargains on handmade jewellery and vintage clothing.
To visit Bondi Beach, consider our 7D5N Sydney, Blue Mountain & Port Stephens or 7D5N Best of Canberra & Sydney, where you will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the sun on the beach itself!
